Call for Papers

The Black Issues in Computing Education (BICE) symposium is the premier venue for research on innovation, challenges, and best practices as it relates to Black students in postsecondary computing education. The BICE symposium invites researchers, practitioners, and policymaker's perspectives and research on equity, inclusion, and justice in computing and computing education with a specific focus on Black issues. The symposium will be held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and will not offer any online or hybrid participation. We invite submissions on topics including but not limited to: issues and opportunities at HBCU/PBI computing departments; recruitment of Black students into undergraduate and graduate computing programs; retention strategies for Black computing students, and much more. The BICE Symposium provides many ways to share ideas, including papers, workshops, lightning talks, and keynote presentations. We invite colleagues to contribute to, review for, and attend BICE Symposium 2024. Once papers are accepted and finalized for publication, the official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library (pending approval). At least one author of an accepted work must register for and attend the conference.

PAPERS (6 pp. max + 1 p. for only references for Full and 4 pp. max + 1 p. for only references for Short; 25 min. presentation) Papers describe an educational research project, computing education experience or pedagogical tool, novel position, or curricular initiative. All papers should explicitly state their motivating questions, relate to relevant literature, and analyze the effectiveness of interventions (if any), including limitations. Initial submissions must be anonymous and must be on the appropriate track.

Computing Education Research. Papers should adhere to rigorous standards, describing their applicable theoretical/analytical lenses, research questions, contexts, methods, results, and limitations. These normally focus on topics relevant to computing education with an emphasis on educational goals and knowledge units/topics; methods or techniques; evaluation of pedagogical approaches; studies of Blacks engaged in computing education, including (but not limited to) students and instructors; and issues of gender, diversity, and underrepresentation.

Experience Reports and Tools. Papers should carefully describe a computing education intervention and its context, and provide a rich reflection on what did or didn’t work, and why. This track accepts experience reports, teaching techniques, and pedagogical tools. All papers in this track should provide enough detail for adoption by others.

WORKSHOPS (2 pp. max; 3 hours) Workshops engage participants in learning new techniques and technologies designed to foster education, scholarship, and collaboration. Proposals must include an abstract, advertisement, intended audience, and size, as well as power, A/V, equipment, and space needs. Workshops do not have schedule conflicts with the technical sessions. Only a 250-word abstract will be included in the proceedings.

LIGHTNING TALKS (1 p. max; 5 min.) Lightning talks describe works in progress, new and untested ideas, or opportunities for collaborative work; an excellent way to spark discussions and get feedback on an idea. Only a 250-word abstract will be included in the proceedings.


BICE 2024 : Black Issues in Computing Education (BICE) Symposium will take place in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It’s a 3 days event starting on Feb 1, 2024 (Thursday) and will be winded up on Feb 3, 2024 (Saturday).
